London Lite Tuesday, 29 September 2009 37 LITESPORT LITE&BITTER Gotanaxetogrind?Doithere... APPARENTLY, Arsene Wengers main priority is to boost the club finances. Not to win trophies. Debs, E15 BUTTON got lucky again on Sunday. If he becomes world champion he will be the worst driver ever to have won it and will soon be forgotten about. Marcus, London ANYONE know why perm-a-tan man Phil Brown wears that stupid headset... his assistant sits next to him in the dugout! BigJ, N12 WATCH the wheels come off the Chelsea bus now. They had the easiest start to the season, but still lost to Wigan and Liverpool next up will be another defeat. Easytiger, W14 ARSENAL will finish below Man City and outside top four... FACT.

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite Rodgers: Ivar idea on how to fix things READING boss Brendan Rodgers is hoping club captain Ivar Ingimarsson can rediscover the form he showed last season as the Royals prepare to halt Prestons impressive Deepdale form tonight. Ingimarsson returned to the Reading side against Watford at the weekend after eight months in the treatment room. He was outstanding against Watford and you can see why he was probably missed last year, said Rodgers. Hes not played for eight months but hes trained well. Hes a great leader of the club and the team. He slotted back in like hed played every week. He will be a massive plus and will steady the ship.
